Positive Partnerships consultation

The purpose of this consultation is to seek the views of the public and other organisations to help refresh and rewrite our strategy called ‘Positive Partnerships'. The consultation opens on Tuesday 4 March and closes on Tuesday 3 June 2014

Introduction

Positive Partnerships is a shared strategy for support and care for people with physical, neurological and/or sensory impairments that provides equal opportunity, choice and independence.

We would like people who use our services as well as people who care for them to help refresh and rewrite our strategy.

We would also like the many agencies, statutory, voluntary and independent who deliver that support and care to comment as well.

In addition we would welcome the opportunity over the next three months to attend any meetings you have arranged to discuss this strategy and its implementation. Please either contact geoff.woollan@hants.gov.uk or jenny.hallett@hants.gov.uk by email to arrange.

This consultation opens on Tuesday 4 March and closes on Tuesday 3 June 2014.

A small working group consisting of Adult Services staff, people who use services and carers, will review all the responses and put together the final version of the strategy.

The final version of the strategy is expected to be published in autumn 2014.

 

Background

This strategy has been co-produced with service users, carers, health and voluntary sector partners. Drafted in 2013 and 2014 it is intended to be constantly reviewed and updated and then reviewed by 2019. The strategy is designed around individual people and their needs, not specific conditions.

Hampshire Adult Services Department has a lead role both in delivery and in enabling the partnerships to work for the ultimate benefit of service users and carers in Hampshire.

However it is not the responsibility of any one agency or person to deliver on this strategy but by working together in positive partnerships the vision can be achieved for the benefit of the whole community.
